"Big Society" plans announced today by the Prime Minister, David Cameron, will see WRVS ladies and other voluntary workers taking over in central government.
The army of hosital shop tea ladies will be taking up prime positions in central government. Doris Beasley is tipped to be the new PM. Doris, 71, is a former school dinner lady who has worked as a WRVS volunteer in her local hospital in Manchester since retiring. She was selected for the top in a national WI flower arranging competition.
"I am looking forward to having a go at running the country" Doris tells us. "It will be fun meeting president Obama and his lovely wife Michelle. They can come round for a cup of tea and a nice piece of cake."
Asked about her plans to cut the defecit, Doris replied that she has always been thrifty and plans to keep saving her coppers in her piggy bank as always to pay off the country debts.
Other volunteers tipped for big jobs in the new government include 69 year old Ted Williams, a former Scout Master from Kings Lynn in Norfolk who is tipped to be the new foreign minister, and Elsie Brown, 68, a charity shop worker from Surrey who will be the new minister for work and pensions.
It is expected that the current government will move aside to allow for the new voluntary government to take over. David Cameron is expected to fill Doris' shoes in the WRVS shop whilst retaining his current salary. "I am looking forward to learning new skills in cake and preserves making" Mr Cameron told us. "The best thing is that when the country goes tits up, I won't get the blame" he added.
The volunteer government will remain just that - unpaid volunteers.
